Many Thriving Businesses. One Unified Voice.
We balance the needs of doing business in our community with the desire to maintain a high quality of life for the people who call Greensboro home.
What We Advocate For
Workforce for New-Collar Jobs
To attract and retain transformational companies, we must continue to position Greensboro as a hub for workforce development, especially for jobs requiring new skills and occupations.
Our work in this area includes: Eastern Triad Workforce Initiative; Ready for School, Ready for Life; Guilford County Local Option Sales Tax; and six pilot career academies.See our work
Access to Capital for Entrepreneurs
We work to keep enterprising individuals in our local area instead of relocating in search of capital. Created in 2019 by Launch Greensboro, the First Launch Capital Fund offers multiple checks and balances to find and fund promising qualified startups in the Piedmont Triad. The fund provides a return on investment to certain investors and also acts as a self-sustaining source of capital.Learn more
Growing New-Collar Jobs
The aviation industry is on the cusp of a new era with the introduction of electric, unmanned technology. Greensboro is the perfect location to be the worldwide center of this new sector thanks to the state’s rich aviation history and our local efforts in effective aviation manufacturing, logistics, and maintenance.See how we’re taking off
